Pictures and images give more life to your blog posts, are more professional, and draw more attention from readers and browsers.
But have you ever been frustrated, wanting to use more images to illustrate your posts, but not wanting to spend the money on buying stock photos? Or, not having time to select them, download them, resize, them, upload them, etc? I know I have. Sometimes you can barely make time to write a post in the first place.
A new plugin launched by Crestock Creative Stock Photos may be the solution to this. This plugin will:
Give you a search interface which you can access through your WordPress admin panel while you are writing posts. You will be able to search by keyword, for images to match your posts
- Inserting the images into your posts is as simple as drag-and-drop.
- The images are already sized to fit blogs – between 300 and 400 pixels. (Updated 4:25 pm 12 Oct – Note: you can resize the images to be smaller, by changing the width and height attributes in the html editor of your WordPress “write post” area. )
- Give you access to advanced filtering options such as image orientation (portrait vrs landscape) or file type.

I hope it’s useful!
P.S. – I received an email notification about this plugin release this morning, and decided that I should write a post about it as soon as possible, even though I haven’t had time to answer all of my recent comments yet. If you left a comment, I haven’t forgotten you!
P.P.S. – This page contains affiliate links to Crestock Creative Stock Photos, but will only have effect if you decide to sign up for a Crestock account through my link and possibly one day buy some stock photos as well. I am not sure if I am required by the FTC to tell you this with every single affiliate link, 🙂 but for now, why not. It does seem kind of corny doesn’t it?
